analysts. joan, do you think wayne lapierre has lost it? he got a grilling on fox yesterday. let's listen to how he reacted. >> the president's kids are safe and we're all thankful for it. the point of that ad -- >> they also face a threat that most children do not face. >> tell that to the people in newtown. >> do you really think that the president's children are the same kind of target as every school child in america? that's ridiculous and you know it, sir. you talk -- one of the points of that ad that i want to ask you about is you made it a class argument, the rich, the elite. they have bodyguards. they have security. >> sure. and mayor bloomberg has it. mayor bloomberg has it. >> i'll tell you somebody else who has security, you do. >> sometimes, yeah -- >> on capitol hill you had security. today you have security. >> yeah, you talk about hypocrisy right out in the open, we've had all kinds of threats coming. >> you know, trying to outline those sentences, there's a lot of grunts going on there. i don't think there's a lot of words or verbs in there. good for chris. he caught him,
humor of wayne lapierre over the last few weeks. but here's a black comedian on this. >> you don't need gun control. we need bullet control. we need to control the bullets. that's right. i think all bullets should cost $5,000. $5,000. you know why? because if it costs $5,000, there'd be no more innocent bystanders. >> when even comedians and crooners like tony bennett are begging for action, are you becoming more optimistic that the nation is prepared now to do something substantive on this issue? >> well, i am. i'm hopeful at least. optimism may be a shallow virtue fair compared to hope. but i think the evidence is growing in line with people's sentiments across this nation who are simply fed up. we want common sense gun control. we want a president who uses his bul bully pulpit to talk about the disregard of common sense for those people who are promoting, you know, the loud and vigilant and aggressive no holds barred approach to guns. the nra has to be brought into line here. most americans think we want to protect the second amendment. we don't want to undermine it, but at the same
by opponents of the second amendment. >> has the nra changed their position on this? because wayne lapierre is snow saying universal background checks don't work. i saw this testimony he gave in 1999 to the house judiciary committee and he said, quote, we think it's reasonable to provide mandatory instant criminal background checks for every sale at every gun show. no loopholes for anyone. >> the answer is yes, the nra has changed their position. the reason it's changed their position is because the system doesn't work. the system is not working now. we have to get that working before we can add any more checks to that system. it's already overburdened. in colorado, it takes ten days to do an instant check. >> you're saying if it got working, if the existing laws started to be improved, you might support the imposition? >> i don't know. let's get it working. let's make sure the 23 states that aren't reporting the names of people who are mentally ill and have violent tendencies, let's get them reported into the system. >> i don't understand why you can't do both. the reality is, yes, 60% of
's an unstated irony in this as well. that lindsey graham knows full well, wayne lapierre knows full well, gayle trotter knows full well and sheldon whitehouse asked a question which lapierre ducked. if you talk to hard core members of the nra, they will admit, as senator whitehouse said, they will admit you don't need an ar-15 to defend your home or go hunting or go target shooting or anything else. they want those guns because the police have those guns. and they believe that they will have to fight the police, and they want to be as heavily armed as the police when that happens. that is the underlying philosophy. >> so they think in terms of a barricade situation where it's them against the law. >> absolutely. >> congresswoman, that is new. it used to be they would say we're sportsmen, we're hunters, and then they would say whatever, self-protection if you live in a tough neighborhood or whatever. now they openly say we have to fight the government. that's pretty close to insurrection time, isn't it? we have to be ready to fight the government? >> this is what we've been hearing for a couple
for gun buyers. it featured a child narrator and video of national rifle association leader wayne lapierre from 1999. >> the n.r.a. once supported background checks. >> we think it's reasonable to provide mandatory criminal background checks for every sale at every gun show. no loopholes anywhere for anyone. >> ifill: the 30-second spot aired on the cbs affiliate that serves washington d.c., but lapeer air repeated yesterday the n.r.a. no longer supports universal checks. >> it's a fraud to call it universal. it's never going to be universal. the criminals aren't going to comply with it. they could care less. >> ifill: he insisted most americans will not buy the president's push for new gun laws. >> they don't want more laws imposed on what is only going to be the law-abiding. they see how little all this has to do with keeping our kids safe and how much it has to do with a two-decade long agenda to just drug out the same old gun ban proposals they've been trying for 10, 20, 30 years and piggy-back them on to this tragedy. >> ifill: president obama says his ideas are common sensory form no
